Dear Treasured Educators:

I want to thank you for all you do for our young students. As you may know, I was lucky enough to share a special relationship with a wonderful teacher, Morrie Schwartz, and it literally changed my life. Thanks to educators like you, future generations will have their lives shaped and changed. And I am honored that in doing so, some of you are sharing the lessons of my old professor as well.

As I’ve travelled across the country, I’ve been delighted to learn of the many high schools, junior high schools, religious schools and universities that are using my books as teaching tools. I’m incredibly flattered and humbled by this and I encourage you to write about your experiences with my books in the classroom by submitting a classroom story to the Teacher’s Corner section. I love receiving mail from classes like yours, and knowing that my old teacher is still, in his way, teaching; this website section is just a small way I can share these wonderful stories with the world.

Warm regards,
Mitch Albom
